I’m doing a poster presentation on library signage in June at the RI Library Association Conference, and today my co-worker handed me two articles she came across about library signage.

I’ve worked for lots of places that have a message to put out, and sometimes, your excellent, helpful information can’t reach its audience because of design barriers. This is a field I’m interested in exploring, so I’m going to start collecting information sources here in no particular order.

User experience can apply to so many aspects of our lives– architecture, planning, wayfinding, and also how we interact with the things we use, including technological devices.
